How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited! And please bring your laptop.

Who is this aimed for? Women and non-binary people of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer.

I think I might be too old for Rails Girls. You're not. It's about your willingness and curiosity, not your age. We’ve had people of all ages taking part.

Can men attend? Yes, but women and non-binary people are given priority.

But I know nothing about programming. Great, apply right now! We all have been absolute beginners at some point in our life.

But I don't have a laptop. Let us know and we will arrange one for you.

But I don't speak Polish. Polish is not required.

I signed up for the event, am I automatically attending? Nope - since we have limited space you will get a confirmation mail if you are selected.

How do you choose the attendees? We want a diverse group of people who are motivated and curious about learning.

Is there a Code of Conduct? Yes! In short, Rails Girls Kraków is dedicated to a harassment-free workshop experience for everyone. Our full anti-harassment policy can be found at: www.railsgirls.com/krakow_coc
